Research plays an essential role in advancing the field of Complementary and Integrative Healthcare (CIH). Research can enhance our understanding of natural therapies, the context in which they are used, and their impact on health and well-being. Results from meaningful research help clinicians, clients, and other stakeholders make informed decisions.
Specific disciplines of research interest at MUIH include yoga therapy, Western herbal medicine, nutrition, health coaching, and five-element based acupuncture and Oriental medicine. In addition, MUIH is dedicated to studying “healing presence”, best practices in teaching CIH, and personal transformation in CIH students and interns.
MUIH faculty members are currently conducting studies to better describe the workforce and patients populations in emerging CIH disciplines. Other research is looking at the attitude of CIH practitioners towards the modern evidence base, practitioner skills in assessing and applying research evidence, and practitioner use of evidence in clinical practice.
